Native Instrument’s POLYPLEX is your very own experimental drum design tool for creating wild sounds. Let synth tweaker extraordinaire Scottie Dugan show you how to building crazy and unique drum kits! Scottie begins by showing you around the POLYPLEX’s eight trigger pads and its ability to randomize nearly every parameter to create those happy accidents. Next up he teaches you how to play and save your kit, including creating all kinds of variations. Scottie then focuses on the Edit section, exploring the top level settings that apply to the entire set of POLYPLEX pads, and diving deep into layer specific settings, with each layer having up to four different layers.
That leads into the Modulation section, where things get even more interesting! POLYPLEX has three modulation sources and a ton of destinations and control, where you can modulate nearly everything to really give your drum sounds movement and life.
Finally, Scottie reveals the two insert and two effects slots and plethora of effects included in POLYPLEX, including MIDI modulation for the effects. He demonstrates all the parameters for all the effects units included in PolyPlex.
If you’re looking for a way to add wild electronic percussion to your songs, POLYPLEX is that tool, and “POLYPLEX Explained” is your guide!
